Unfortunately, python doesn't seem to have been installed from ports (at
least, not directly).  The environment I'm working on is a shared host
implementing a virtual private server.  To install python (and other tools),
I have to use some kind of packager tool called vinstall.  Unfortunately,
this gives me no config options, except which version of python I wish to
install.

I have sent a request to the hosts' support to get the Makefile.pre.in file,
so I can determine what stack size they have set for the vinstall.

I have been at this for several evenings now (can't do it during normal
working hours in case I break the server [yeah, it's nice to have the
confidence of superiors!]), and bit the bullet today, and tried to reinstall
the latest of everything.  I now have Zope 2.7.4 using Python 2.3.4.  I can
add all the various products in the Plone 2.0.5 tarball it all works, with
the exception of CMFPlone.  Once this directory is added, Zope refuses to
respond.  So, I'm still no closer to even identifying where the problem
actually is, but my suspicion is still python.

So much for the new Plone website tomorrow afternoon :)
